| On the monodromy at infinity of a polynomial map, II - R. Garcia In the last years a lot of work has been concentrated on the study of the behaviour at infinity of polynomial maps. This behaviour can be very complicated, therefore the main idea was to find special classes of polynomial maps which have, in some sense, nice properties at infinity. In this paper, we completely determine the complex algebraic monodromy at infinity for a special class of polynomial maps (which is complicated enough to show the nature of the general problem).

The added complexity of the cuprates with potentially numerous competing phases including charge, spin, orbital, and lattice ordering, makes teasing out any unique phenomena challenging.
